I'm looking advice on the simplest way to integrate all my data together.

I have 2 x ED80s on a dual rig, with an Atik 383L+ on one and a QHY9M on the other.

Both cameras have the Kodak KAF-8300 sensor.

I have the complete set of calibration data for each individual camera - DARKS, FLATS, DARK FLATS, BIAS.

I also like to do mosaics, and use the fantastic mosaic tool to join the panels.  Again I would like to intgrate all my data at the same time.

 

Any ideas welcomed, please provide details or settings.

 

Many thanks

Adam

Hi Adam,

I use the 'multi session processing' in the load menu.

1) Load in lights from camera 1 - Assign the session as camera 1

2) Load in calibration files from camera 1 and assign them to camera 1

3) Load in lights from camera 2 - assign as camera 2

4) Load in calibration files from camera 2 and assign to camera 2

You will then be able to integrate them together. I find that this works best to integrate each mono channel separately.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Sara 👍🏼

What settings would you suggest for the integration stage, in terms of outlier rejection, or is it no different to stacking one camera data set.

It depends on the numbers of lights I am using as to what rejection process I use. If it's more than 20 I use LAN Winsor and keep the rest of the settings to default.
